    Description

    If you are yearning for a home that's close to Yale, hospitals & highways while retaining a certain element of bucolic serenity - you have found the one. The former estate of Richard Gimbel of Gimbel Brothers department store, this Westville Colonial offers 6 bedrooms & 3.5 baths, over 3,000 sq ft of living space & 1.16 acres of park-like grounds. Enter into the elegant foyer with views of the stunning staircase. There is an expansive living room with glistening hardwood floors & fireplace with beautiful mantle & a formal dining room with built-in china cabinets. Spacious kitchen with exposed brick, stainless appliances, plenty of cabinet & counter space & granite counters. Completing the main level is a sprawling sunroom with ceiling fan & tile floor, a cozy bonus room with fireplace (perfect for use as an office) & a half bath. The 2nd floor has 4 huge bedrooms with great closet space, 2 full baths & a sunporch with laundry. The bathrooms have been both renovated with tile & updated vanities. Two additional bedrooms & a full bath are located in the finished attic. The house preserves many original features & personal touches: a bomb shelter - which would serve nicely as a wine cellar, mosaic floor design, antique tile around the fireplace, etc. The exterior of the home is equally as grand, with an exquisite stonewall, a well maintained pathway to the front entrance & a large backyard that abuts the Yale fields & forest.
